I've left Bethlehem, and I feel free. I've left the girl I was supposed to be, and some day I'll be born.
The monsters are in your own head
I think it's important to find the little things in everyday life that make you happy.
Far away, to an infinite world I escape. I'm clear and calm, I'm unafraid. Sunless days, in my sheltered milkyway. In Saturn's rings I feel no pain.
For me music is a vehicle to bring our pain to the surface, getting it back to that humble and tender spot where, with luck, it can lose its anger and become compassion again.
Just watching my cats can make me happy.
The flower has opened, has been in the sun and is unafraid. I'm taking more chances; I'm bold and proud.
It's me who is my enemy
Me who beats me up
Me who makes the monsters
Me who strips my confidence.
I am not the person who is singing
I am the silent one inside. . . .
I am not my house, my car, my songs
They are only stops along my way. . . .
I am searching for the truth. Somewhere, it's in the music.

I'm a songwriter who's put my childhood memories and teenage angst into songs.
Being a writer is a very private, internal process. Ultimately I am more the writer, being an introvert.

But looking back, the fact was that I had a couple of big hits too quickly and it was simply too much for an introvert like me to handle.
Didgeridoo was something I picked up while I was on tour in Australia with Peter Gabriel in '93. I found out later that it's only meant to be played by men.
The river was always there inside of me, but I was very shy. I could see that this was my path. I felt destiny in my own music.
Thank God I have music to vent my emotions. I'd be in a prison if I didn't.
Walking is magic. Can't recommend it highly enough. I read that Plato and Aristotle did much of their brilliant thinking together while ambulating. The movement, the meditation, the health of the blood pumping, and the rhythm of footsteps...this is a primal way to connect with one's deeper self.
I'm raising my daughter with her grandparents in the picture, and that feels good.
